The third movie in the inbred-cannibal-mutant-hillbilly franchise features a group of escaped prisoners who find themselves lost in the woods and hunted by a pair of the flesh-eating freaks. Oh, and lets throw some miscellaneous cops, a leftover camper, a random dog, and an armored car full of money in there just for kicks.
What did I think?
This was not a good movie. Bad acting, idiotic characters, and poor CGI turned this into yet another nail in the Wrong Turn coffin. I almost didn’t watch it at all. Sure, those first few kills were entertaining (plus T&A always helps) but the entire opening sequence reeked of low-budget crap. Then we moved on to the prison where they introduce the poorly-acted one-dimensional cast and the ‘plot’ for the movie. That part sucked so bad that I wanted to turn it off right then. But I’m almost glad I didn’t. Almost. The movie got better as it went along, and in the end it turned out better than I expected… better than the opening scenes implied, and certainly better than the second movie.
…It just wasn’t good ENOUGH. It was unoriginal and poorly executed. Nothing surprising happened in this entire movie, except at the VERY end. And the cannibals? Two guys in Halloween masks doing an imitation of the Joker’s laugh from the Batman cartoons? This… is horror?
Pass on this one. If you decide not to, then don’t judge the entire movie on the basis of the first fifteen minutes. You MIGHT like enough of it to keep it from being a complete waste of time. But I don’t think so.
